Something has been noticeably different about Kawhi Leonard this season. He’s been aggressively embracing the task of being the primary, at times high-volume scorer for the Spurs.
On Saturday, Leonard went for a career-high 41 points along with six rebounds and five assists against the Cleveland Cavaliers. That wasn’t the only career-high for Kawhi:
That's a new career-high for Kawhi in points (41) and shot attempts (30). Previous high on FGA was 26 in November. #Spurs
